Our football match prediction:
Sevilla have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions of late. Following a 3-3 draw with Liverpool in the Champions League, Sevilla came from two goals behind to beat Villarreal 3-2 at Estadio de las Ceramicas in their last league fixture and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of Sunday’s football match. Eduardo Berizzo’s charges have been impressive at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this term and a win over Deportivo La Coruna could see them climb to the Champions League berth in the La Liga standings. The Galician side, on the other hand, sit in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Andalusia and we do not believe they are capable of upsetting Sevilla at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Los Sevillanos do not suit Deportivo and it has to be noted that Eduardo Berizzo’s men are undefeated in previous six meetings with the Galician outfit.
Highlighted Player (Nolito):
Widely known as Nolito, Miguel Agudo Duran is a Spanish forward born on 15 October 1986 in Sanlucar de Barrameda, who has had an unconventional path to stardom. The highly rated footballer did not go through Barcelona’s famous La Masia youth academy, but he rather joined the B side in 2008 and went on to show a great deal of potential. Nolito also made a couple of performances for the senior side, but ultimately left for Benfica in an attempt to secure regular playing time. That proved an excellent decision as the winger produced some scintillating showings at Estadio da Luz, and following a loan spell with Granada, he returned to La Liga to sign for Celta Vigo. During his time at Balaidos, Nolito developed into one of league’s leading footballers, usually playing on the left wing and wreaking havoc after cutting inside. The experienced footballer scored almost 40 league goals in first 100 appearances for the Sky Blues, while also breaking into the Spain national team, and despite making his La Furia Roja debut at the age of 28, he quickly became an important player for the side.
